Chicago for two nights

My family and I are going to chicago for two nights in about a week. We have already been to avec and green zebra and thought they were both excellent. We love mexican, italian and french cuisine. Any suggestions would be great.

  1. Assuming you're staying in the Michigan Avenue area.
    Spiaggia Cafe -- Italian (less expensive sister; same good food as Spiaggia)
    Topolobamo and Frontera Grill -- Rick Bayless's two excellent Mexican restaurants
    Coco Pazzo -- Another Upscale Northern Italian option

    A little out of the main drag, but not hard to get to:
    Spring -- seafood; same chef as Green Zebra
    Mexique -- upscale Mexican on West Chicago Ave
    Bistro Campagne -- authentic and mostly organic bistro in LIncoln Square
    Le Sardine and La Bouchon -- sister restaurants with excellent French in the West Loop and Bucktown, respectively
